Xfinity Series marks the return of NASCAR

  • The NASCAR Xfinity Series continues its season tonight from Darlington, with the running of the Toyota 200.
  • Kyle Busch has the shortest odds to win at -170 even with him starting in the 13th row.
  • All other drivers possess positive odds, giving Busch a 55% probability of winning.

DARLINGTON, S.C. – The NASCAR world looks to continue its return to a regularly scheduled season after a two-month hiatus with the Xfinity Series Toyota 200 set to run tonight from Darlington.

The Cup Series saw Kevin Harvick take home the checkered flag in the first race since the break on Sunday, and now the leagues’ second flight of racing looks to match the excitement.

Kyle Busch leads all drivers with the shortest odds to win the Toyota 200, followed by youngsters Chase Briscoe and Harrison Burton.

Toyota 200 @ Darlington Raceway – Winner

  • Kyle Busch -170
  • Chase Briscoe +600
  • Harrison Burton +800
  • Brandon Jones +1200
  • Justin Allgaier +1200
  • Noah Gragson +1400
  • Ross Chastain +1400
  • Field +3000

Atop the Xfinity Series standings sits 19-year-old Harrison Burton, who scored top-five finishes in all of the first four races of the season including a win at the Auto Club Speedway in March. His No. 20 Toyota will look to keep a three-point lead in the standings over Chase Briscoe, who’s No. 98 Ford has a win and two top-five finishes already this season as well.

Burton will be making his Darlington debut Tuesday night, and it will come with absolutely no practice on the track whatsoever.

The lineup was set by random draw, and drivers will be going at the track completely cold.

Sitting back at +1400 odds is Ross Chastain, who might be worth a second look for potential bettors.

Before the shutdown, Chastain competed in every single NASCAR scheduled event of the 2020 calendar across four Cup races, four Xfinity races and two Truck races.

No driver has raced more than Chastain in 2020.

Other rules implemented include extra protective equipment, health screenings for all crew members, and maintaining social distancing.

Noah Gragson and Michael Annett will be front row in South Carolina as the green flag drops tonight at 6 p.m. EST.
